Welcome to the Multi-faith Centre
"When someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould you, it feels damn good. It is astonishing how problems that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens. How confusions that seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard."
Carl Rogers, an American psychologist.
